Introducing the BioContinuum™ HD – The only fully-featured, post-column imaging and energy filter for life and material science applications. The BioContinuum HD provides zero-loss filtering to improve the contrast of transmission electron microscope (TEM) images and can be upgraded with the capability to acquire electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) and energy-filtered transmission electron microscopy (EFTEM) data.
The BioContinuum HD combines the latest generation of GIF electron optics, the K3® camera's transformative direct detection technology, and Gatan’s world-class EELS and EFTEM acquisition and analysis capabilities. This powerful combination of energy filter, camera, and software is optimized for cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET), low-dose STEM spectrum imaging, EELS, and EFTEM. With the BioContinuum HD, you can successfully gain insight into the atomic structure of biological macromolecules, disease progression at the molecular level, and broaden your research to applications at the convergence of life and material science.
Providing the most easy-to-use and versatile system, the BioContinuum HD imaging filter can be controlled by the powerful Gatan Microscopy Suite® of software including DigitalMicrograph®, STEMPack™ spectrum imaging, Latitude® S, Latitude T, and Latitude D. Alternatively, the BioContinuum imaging filter can be integrated into Thermo Scientific EPU software, Thermo Scientific Tomography software, Serial EM, and Leginion for traditional life science data collection.
The BioContinuum imaging filter is available in two different models:
|Real-time motion correction||Optional||Optional|
|Integrated centered beam stop||Optional||Optional|
|Integrated BF/DF detector for STEM imaging||-||Optional|
The BioContinuum HD imaging filter is compatible with most TEMs from Thermo Fisher, JEOL, and Hitachi.
